Publisher's Summary

James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    "Annoying narrator"

    Couldn't finish. I enjoy space dramas, but the narrator's delivery was nothing short of pompous. I may see if I can borrow the book to read. Save your credit.

    "Interesting"
    What did you like best about Leviathan Wakes? What did you like least?

    I started to read this because of the SyFy series "The Expanse". Typically TV/Movies based on a book are not as good, but after reading this I think the TV drama was better. I mean I like the book, it was gut wrenching, but the political intrigue of the TV version was far more captivating and had more settings.

    So, what I liked best was the setting, Mars, Earth, OPA - belters. All the intrigue therein.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where the Donnager was taken out by the mysterious stealth ships. Captain Yao was so confident in the Capital Ship, the Martians are so arrogant, and they were PWNED.


    Was Leviathan Wakes worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Captain Holden is a sanctimonious, egotistical bastard. I cannot stand him, I will take the TV version any time.

    "great mix of tech, space, people, and plot"

    The characters were quite memorable, and the ending wasn't what i wanted. But the universe is very believable with just enough details to pull you into the story.

    "Great Book"

    Enjoyed it immensely. Enjoy the extra detail that could not be included in the Television show. Looking forward to the next.

    "Excellent read."

    Leviathan Wakes was thoroughly entertaining. I went in blind, and loved it beginning to end.

    I'm a guy who loves stories and thought provoking books, especially thoughts that I have already had. Sometimes you need to hear it again.

    "another zombie book"

    Too long on details. Plus another zombie book now in space. It's too bad because about half way through I started to take to the story with the detective and his lead to find the missing girl. Then he finds her it ends being a freakin' zombie book. uhggg.

    "A graphic novel for your ears"

    Very fun little novel. I enjoyed it a great deal, particularly once I realized that it would be an amazing graphic novel. Of course it's a tele series, which almost as good.
    I feel like I should re-watch the season to get more depth.
    The book is actually quite long, so this audiobook has the added bonus of being of good value.

    "completely hooked on the series now"
    Did Jefferson Mays do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Unfortunately no. All the characters sound the same. More importantly, the reader read everything flat, there's no excitement, urgency, tension or any emotion when there's supposed to be.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked the story, and definitely will read the second book. But because I did not enjoy the performance of this audiobook, I will probably switch to paper book.
